Know Before You Go: Visiting Pearl Harbor

By Viator, June 2017

4.5 721 Reviews | Add your review

Every year, over 1.5 million visitors visit the USS Arizona memorial, which is no small tribute to the memory of the Pearl Harbor attack that launched the US into World War II. With so many people visiting the memorial, it pays to do a little research before visiting. Look no further, as we’ve done the hard work for you.

The most popular destination when visiting Pearl Harbor is the USS Arizona Memorial. This tasteful and architecturally complex memorial is positioned directly over the sunken USS Arizona, and can be a somber and emotional place. Though free, tickets are limited and can go quickly, so book a Pearl Harbor tour with a group or go early.

In addition, visitors can tour the USS Bowfin submarine docked just next door, for a $10 ticket fee. Dubbed the “Pearl Harbor Avenger,” the USS Bowfin was launched one year to the day of the Pearl Harbor attack, and would go on to sink 44 enemy ships during her nine war patrols. An invaluable glimpse into the cramped quarters of a submarine and the lives of those that serve aboard its metal hull, this is a rare experience indeed.

Ending World War II was quite an accomplishment, and if seeing the battleship upon which the peace treaty was signed is important to you, then consider heading over to the USS Missouri Memorial. $20 gets you onboard and your choice of guided, audio-visual, or self-guided walking tour.
